Blind and Curtain Cords

Did you know? Cords from blinds and curtain cords are a danger to young children. Always keep cords high and out of reach of young children.

Safety Tips

  • Do not leave cords hanging
  • Keep looped or long blind cords high and out of reach of children
  • Cut cords short when blinds are fully down or curtains are fully closed
  • Make sure that children cannot reach the cord, whether the blind is up or down
  • Keep cribs, beds, high chairs or playpens away from windows or doors
  • Keep sofas, chairs, tables, shelves, or bookcases away from windows1
